Whoa. To Obama’s hearing and Deaf supporters who attended the Inauguration Day at Washington, D.C., nice going! Leaving that much trash at the Mall is truly mind-boggling. 100 tons of trash! DCRepublicans blog has something to say and ask about what happened on Jan. 20th below (I would strongly suggest you all to click on the link below to see the pictures and two videos yourself):
Really, people, I’m sure it must be that cold to pick up the trash after it was all over. Not quite eco-friendly and civic-minded, aren’t y’all?
UPDATE: A Green Agenda for the President’s First 100 Days . . . the first day of President Obama is epic fail for the green agenda. *tsk-tsk-tsk*
Washington Post article, 1.22.2009: The Trash Was Historic, too.
“More than any Fourth of July, more than any event we’ve seen,” Park Service spokesman William Line said.
The detritus included handwarmer packets, bottles, food, newspapers, blankets, gloves, coolers and a table or two, in addition to items bought from street vendors.
“They left behind Obama hats, Obama bags, Obama socks,” said Mafara Hobson, spokeswoman for Mayor Adrian M. Fenty (D). “People left behind a lot of trash. A lot of it was the vendors along the parade route, too.”
